The Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment (MEIA) is a next-generation assessment of Emotional Intelligence (EI) with several valuable and unique qualities that distinguish it from more traditional measures. The MEIA is the only trait-based, self-report measure of EI with distinct coverage of all 10 components of Salovey and Mayer's (1990) influential EI model. Furthermore, the methods of test construction address important shortcomings found in many popular EI assessments.


  • Research on emotional intelligence (EI) where a comprehensive, trait-based measure of EI is needed
  • Counselling aid for guidance and career counselors who can use the results as a basis for discussion about career and further educational opportunities.
